I have been on a YouTube cleanse, meaning I consciously unplugged from watching it because drama. I feel that everyone just runs a drama channel these days, I don’t need fake drama – I can watch the fucking news. Although, slow clap for Kim Jong Un for being willing to talk about relinquishing nuclear weapons (still a fascist). I mean, how is it that such a tyrant is less of a demagogue than The 45!? Anyway, I think it’s hysterical that Tati, who has vlogged her Botox procedures releases a dietary supplement for skin, hair and nails. I mean, I feel that she could have guessed that there would be some backlash. But on the flip side, she seems to know her skincare and I don’t think that she is being deceptive. I don’t recall this much backlash over those hair gummies that seem to be hugely popular. I’m all caught up now, resuming the cleanse.
I was recently reading an article about movies that most everyone has seen and in fairness it did say most everyone but I still had not watched at least 10 of them! I watch a ton of movies, I’ll watch anything but I do have a shortlist of movies that I have failed to see:
The Matrix – I am as surprised as anyone that I have not seen this, Keanu Reeves is definitely one of my favourite actors but I am just not interested. I get the references only because my generation was obsessed with this movie, I am guessing at least half a dozen boys from my class dressed as Neo for Halloween (and on other occasions where costumers were not required). I just don’t get the whole premise – red pills, blue pills – take all of the pills for all I care.
The Notebook – I feel like the plot of this movie is something that I would be interested in – forbidden love, crying in the rain, build me a house, blah, blah, blah but I just can’t. Can I say it? I just don’t like Ryan Gosling. Not sorry about it.
Mission Impossible – Another movie that seems like something I would enjoy but really, this could be a list of all of the Tom Cruise movies I haven’t seen. I can generally get past who the actor/actress is if they are good in the role but not when it comes to Tom Cruise. Can’t stand him.
Groundhog Day – Yup, never seen it although the most famous one liners have been ingrained into my subconscious.
Edward Scissorhands – I don’t really know what this movie is about but I recall thinking that it must be terrifying when I was a kid and I refused to watch it, I stuck to that apparently. The BF actually gave me a special edition release a few years ago and I never watched it, maybe I mentioned wanting to see it or he thought I’d like it? Not sure but I could watch it if I wanted to 😛
How about you, what popular movies have you skipped?
Thanks for stopping by <3
